In 2018, AEC provided designers, engineers, architects and others with valuable in-person education in Chicago that covered a wealth of topics related to utilizing aluminum extrusion. Now in 2019, AEC has entered into an agreement with Aluminum USA (ALU USA) to collocate Extrusion Design University 2019 - EDU '19 in Nashville, TN at Music City Center.

The EDU program is designed for individuals who want to learn how to design and engineer products using aluminum extrusions and learn more about the extrusion process. The one-day EDU ’19 program is scheduled for Thursday, September 12, and will feature educational sessions arranged in three market-specific tracks, including Architecture, Automotive and General/Industrial Design.

EDU ’19 will benefit design and engineering professionals, manufacturers and others from every end-use market for aluminum extrusions. The program is targeted at product designers, automotive engineers, architects, product and material specifiers, and more.

Focused on application industries served by aluminum extrusion, the educational program at EDU ’19 will provide a valuable learning experience for you and your team. The conference includes educational programming covering a variety of application markets, including:

  • Building & Construction
  • Automotive/Transportation
  • Industrial Applications/Engineered Products

Sessions will cover a multitude of topics—from alloys, specifications, and design to finishing, fabrication, and specific extrusion applications.

In addition, attendees will be able to attend the co-located Aluminum USA exhibition on September 12-13. ALUMINUM USA is the place to be to get a comprehensive overview of the entire aluminum industry. It represents the entire value chain offering solutions for the aluminum industry and all applications fields. It is the meeting place for producers, processors, suppliers of technologies, buyers, designers and engineers from the entire value chain.

Watch for program and registration details coming soon!



AEC is currently seeking presentations and speakers for EDU '19. Based on the experience AEC has obtained over the past several years delivering educational content to design and engineering professionals, and at the well-received EDU ’18 in Chicago, attendees will be eager to learn and earn possible continuing education learning units for the information they obtain at this conference.

You’ll be helping to advance the knowledge of these design professionals and create an atmosphere of learning and development. The event will bring together industry experts (people like you!) who understand extrusion design and production processes, assisting participants in honing their aluminum extrusion knowledge and design skills.
